Students with limited English proficiency in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 6 are considered eligible for admission without pre-admissions language proficiency testing. Once a student is admitted to the school, a diagnostic test will be administered to determine the student’s English Learner level. ESL classes are provided for students who will benefit from such additional English language instruction.
Students entering in Grades 7-12 are required to demonstrate a specific level of English language proficiency for each grade (see below), determined by a school-administered English Placement test.
All tests are administered in a non-threatening and culturally sensitive manner.
Grade Level Recommended ESL Level at time of Admission
7 ESL 1 or higher
8 ESL 2 or higher
9 ESL 3 or higher
10 ESL 4 or higher
